Playing Easy to Get
I trully enjoyed this story. There was so much action and I adored Nikolai for his patience and his love for his bride. Now, as far as the bride goes, she was really crazy. There were moments in her POV where I thought that she's literally crazy, since the decisions and cho ...more
1. Turn Up The Heat by Sherrilyn Kenyon : 5 Stars
Loved it! I loved this kick-ass heroine! I just wish it were a bit longer than it is.
2. Hunter's Oath by Jaid Black : 3 Stars
Well, this was a little weird story. But somehow the hero managed to grow on me! He's a romantic guy and a devoted husband...Man of my dreams! There always be a place in my heart for you, my hunky Viking!
3. The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole : 3 Stars
Please check out my review he ...more
Baby said so I did.
I'm giving it 3 Stars. Great world building and I like Cole's writing style but it didn't dazzle me.
Evidently, the lure of the IAD are the immortal dudes. I do like a big un and Wroth is big... everywhere.
I'm not mad about this, but otherwise he was kind of white bread.
I was thoroughly enjoying Myst initially especially when she blooded him then left him hanging. Literally.
FOR 5 YEARS!!!!!

☆☆☆ for Turn Up the Heat by Sherrilyn Kenyon
☆☆☆☆ for Hunter's Oath by Jaid Black
☆☆☆☆☆ for The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole
I bought this book specifically for the Cole story, as it is technically #1 in the series and I've already read #2 & 3 - and god it was good! Very hot and steamy, and very well written, it's obvious she wrote it at the same time as book #2 because at the end there they overlap.
Hunter's Oath was really good too, and sweet ...more
Well, do yourself a favour, and skip straight to that story, because the first two in this anthology, Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Turn up the Heat and Jaid Black’s Hunter’s Oath, probably aren’t worth your time – at least that was the case for me.
Turn up the Heat - Sherrilyn Kenyon
Thankfully, I’ve read Sherrilyn Ken ...more
Note that I gave the whole anthology a 3-star rating because I just didn't know how else to compromise between my very disparate ratings of the three ...more
The Warlord Wants Forever is a short story that introduces readers to the immensely popular Immortals After Dark Series. If you actually started out the series with book one, “A Hunger Like No Other”, then you’ve already met the h/h of this story: valkyrie Myst the Coveted, and turned vampire and ...more
I thought the romance between Nikolae and Myst was yummy. Just the right mix of friction and romance. The sex was hot (about my limit - but oh so good). I ...more
Sherrilyn Kenyon's contribution was typical SK. A goody-two-shoes heroine with no life whatsoever that needs just the right guy to unleash the temptress that's lurking just beneath her holier-than-thou facade. A tall, dark, and dangerous hero with a shady past and a murderous "family" bossman on his tight ass, that just happens to have a penchant for the Dairy Maid thing the heroin ...more
"Turn Up The Heat" (non-PNR) - Sherrilyn Kenyon
One more fun, exciting adventure featuring the men & women of B.A.D. (Bureau of American Defense (think off-the-books CIA-like).
I LOVE her BAD series - many are stories in anthol's. - and wish she'd write another full-length BAD book.
"Hunter's Oath" (PNR) - Jaid Black
Cool, I stumbled over a 2nd JB anthol. story featuring the hidden underground world of the Vikings! Must check out this author.

Which was AWESOME!
I adored the story, and just plain loved the chemistry between Vince and Allison! The conclusion of the story was so heartfelt, beautiful, and euphoric that I fell in love with this short story! I felt the characters to be very real and believable, and the plot was just plain fun!
It was contemporary -- but what is worse is, it was campy and silly and utterly la ...more
5 stars for HUNTER’S OATH by Jaid Black.
Sophia attended her brother’s funeral in Alaska. She takes a taxi to the airport, but the driver locks her inside and instead drives her to a cabin in a remote area of Alaska. Two tall, weird mountain men pay money to the taxi driver and take Sophia to an underground society of Viking people. There is a shortage of women, so they kidnap women from above and sell them on the auction block to be wives to the ...more
I purchased this book solely for the Kresey Kole Novel "the warlord wants forever" but decided it was worth reading the other two stories included.
The first story in the book was just plain ridiculous and unfortunately very far fetched. I understand that in a short story the plot has to move fast but honestly this was just stupid. This lady lands on a 'fantasy' island then within a couple of hours has
1. This one
2. A Hunger Like No Other
3. No Rest for the Wicked
4. Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night
5. Dark Needs at Nights Edge (releases May 2008)
6. Dark Desires After Dusk (releases June 2008)
"Hunters Oath" by Jaid Black is her Warlords of the Viking Underground Series,#3 and was very...different. Series order is:
1. Beseiged in "The Hunted,"
2. Hunter's Right in "T ...more
I even remember the Jaid Black story. This is why I write reviews, it's so I can remember later on what I liked/disliked about a story, and I'm so mad at myself I didn't write one for this.
FWIW, I loved The Warlord Wants Forever, and didn't care for the other 2 stories.

Before I begin, if you're looking for the cover shown on Kresley Cole's website (you know, the one with the grayed out hunk and the shiny green title?), know that if you're getting this story in paperback, it WON'T have that cover. It took me a lot of researching to discover that A Warlord Wants Forever is a novella, NOT a full blown novel. So unless you have an E-Reader and you're getting the electronic version of this sto ...more
